5s Boot Delivered

This proposal has been accepted as a session.


One Line Summary

5s boots delivered, today.


A few years ago Arjan Van de Ven presented a talk about the goal of booting Linux systems in 5s. Today, we can achieve this with standard off-the-shelf hardware and mainstream distributions. This session will include a demo how to boot a comprehensive GNOME desktop within 5s, without any special hacks. We will look at the various components involved including the hardware, the BIOS, boot loader, kernel, initrd and init system, and what has improved over the past years to make this possible.
